Organizing OU's

When setting up OU's, in my case for departments- In addition to adding the departments computers, I'm adding the users. Do people usually just add the user group, or the users and the group to the OU?

If you want to apply Group Policies to the OU, then you must put your users in there..   So, yes, this is standard practice...

What if a user is a member of two different groups?

That is okay, but the user can only be in one OU, and that is where your GPO will take affect...  I try not to let my users populate more than one group though...
